Previously unreleased music from David Mancuso’s Loft favourites.
Enigmatic Brit-funk pioneers Sun Palace have opened their archives once more for a new 4-track EP via Parisian label Chuwanaga.
The duo behind accidental Paradise Garage and The Loft classic ‘Rude Movements’, which was reissued in full via BBE in 2016, much of Sun Palace’s hyper-productive early ’80s output is yet to see the light of day.
In 2017, MIC Records released Mike Collins’ The Lost Tapes 1983-1989, which shone light on the prolific multi-instrumentalist and Sun Palace co-founder’s archive of recordings.
This time round, Chuwanaga’s collection focusses on music co-written by Collins and Breeze McKrieth, a founding member of Brit-funk bands Light Of The World and Beggar & Co.
Mixing new wave, proto-house, disco and a nascent Brit-funk sound, The Lost Songs 1982-1984 is the next piece in the Sun Palace puzzle.
Sun Palace – The Lost Songs 1982-1984 is out now on Chuwanaga Records. Preorder your copy here and check out the artwork, which references Sun Palace’s Winning EP, below.
